Press Room

“Solid…. Beautiful… Inspiring!”

"That lump in your throat that you get when you hear the National Anthem? I got it watching that video. Powerful message and one that can transform the American Cynic back to the American Dreamer."

“Great film...a high involvement culture is what all companies should strive to create”

“Wow! The important message of the film comes through loud and clear: a good free market life styles requires earning through ownership of capital as well as labor.”

“I am really excited about this. ‘We the Owners’ is going to fill a huge void!”

“The world is changing faster than ever. ‘We the Owners’ shows us how the openness and interconnectivity inherent in employee ownership helps businesses react and respond faster…. and better.”

“A great film for the classroom as business schools are an important place to change business norms that would spread more places.”

“The entrepreneurial companies featured in the film makes it clear that while the journey may be different, the starting principles of employee ownership are common.”
